LA writer finds Steinbeck manuscripts
LOS ANGELES - A handwritten draft of John Steinbeck's novel "Sweet Thursday," along with an unpublished story and other works, will be auctioned by a writer who says they were sitting in a closet for 50 years.
"This stuff was unbelievable — just laying in a box," said Joel Eisenberg. "I had this `Aha!' moment when I realized not only what I had here, but what I had the responsibility to do."
You mean, like your responsibility to run out to the auctioneer and make half a million dollars?
I wish I had responsibilities like that. Sounds much better than the ones I have now.
